2022 Stronger - P153 - From Good to Gold: Medical Emergency Response Process Improvement - On Demand

Froedtert Hospital’s resuscitation team has actively worked to improve patient outcomes and excellence in cardiac arrest response. We implemented a multifactorial approach to enhance our resuscitation team’s education and developed a separate, highly trained, consistent and reliable medical emergency response team. Primary focus areas for improvement included communication, consistent team roles and education, and an overall increase in quality. In addition, we implemented a weekly quality review process to provide continued feedback, allowing team members to recognize gaps in patient care delivery. As a result, we’ve adapted to our rapidly growing organization and improved our patient outcomes consistently since 2017.

Target Audience

  • Healthcare Quality Professionals
  • Nurses
  • Physicians
  • Other Healthcare Professionals
